The Story

The Pheasant Tail nymph is one of the most utilized nymph patterns in the history of the sport for the simple reason that it works almost anywhere. Place a bead and flashback on this classic, and you have a refreshed version that is better than the original nymph. Imitates any number of nymph species and is a good choice in off-color water. In pheasant.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Maximum Effectiveness Fishing milder, shallower riffles below heavier fly, and in quieter water on freestone Rocky Mountain rivers. Also effective in alpine lakes. Very durable.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice nymph I've bought discount flies from nine stores. Don't do it. Thy are made with cheap hooks that break easy. These Orvs flies live up th the name. As a side note, the head head pheasant tail works in every river I fish. I don't know why, but it works. Wisconsin, Colorado, Michigan, Wyoming.
